The TORC1 inhibitor Nprl2 protects age-related digestive function in Drosophila

Figure 5. nprl2 mutation decreased gut length and width. Newly hatched male yw, nprl21, and nprl21; TorA594V/+ flies were cultured on standard food for 15 days and then dissected. Gut length (between the arrowhead) and gut width (arrow) were then measured. Error bars represent the SD of the indicated number of data points. *P < 0.05, ***P < 0.001. NS, not significant.
